* DirtyCop: Detective Chet Wagner was never a model policeman to begin with, hacking his office email suggests that he takes bribes, and his unreliability [[spoiler: proves useful to the conspirators, as he is assigned to the Sarif Industries Attack Investigation and, predictably, botches it horribly.]]

* BookEnds: The first interaction between the main character and the Spec Ops mercenaries is an unmodified Adam Jensen, head of security, being shoved through a pane of glass by the heavily augmented merc leader in the labs of Jensen's employer. The last is [[spoiler:that same mercenary leader wearing a bodysuit looking like the natural human musculature being thrown through a glass pane by Jensen, now brimming with augmentations himself. This happens when Jensen assaults the Omega Ranch laboratories operated by the mercs' employers.]]

* BadBoss: Tai Yong Medical's CEO Zhao Yun Ru. She's ruthless, will fire you if you voice any doubt whatsoever about TYM's practices, no matter how rational, and her business' practices go from violently incompetent quality control to an almost-homicidal disregard for the life of her workers. The whole company works under a cloak of terror, so much so that everyone who works under her is terrified of having to even talk to her. And yet, she doesn't seem to be short of employees, some quite brilliant who could no doubt find work for any other manufacturer of augmentations.
** How she recruits and retains employees is shown in the novella "Deus Ex: Fallen Angel". She has the higher level engineers kidnapped and brought to TYM and forced to work for her under threat of death. This brings in workers for TYM and destroys its competitors.

** In general, the scripted events in the game can put people off, especially those GenreSavvy enough to know what's about to happen (such as the fight against the first boss). Playing as a stealth-centric character still does not prevent Adam from busting down doors, firing guns, stabbing people or performing very un-stealthy actions in the cinematics.

* ShootTheHostageTaker: At the end of the first mission, you must attempt to save [[spoiler:Josie Thorpe]] from [[spoiler:Zeke Sanders]], who has taken her as a hostage. Among the many options is to shoot or taze [[spoiler:Zeke]] before he can hurt his hostage, though hitting anywhere other than his head [[DeadMansTriggerFinger will result in one extra dead person]].

* FictionalDisability: The inventor of cybernetics, Hugh Darrow, has a rare condition that causes his body to reject any cybernetics all together (most people's bodies reject them to some degree, but this can be [[PhlebotinumPills controlled with medication]]). This means that he must walk with a cane. [[spoiler: His bitterness over this is why he takes part in the EvilPlan to turn the public against cybernetics.]]

* RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil: As if all of Belltower's dirty ops and thuggery weren't bad enough, the Missing Link DLC strongly alludes that the Belltower mercs are having their way with the female prisoners being shipped to Rifleman Station in emails, and one woman in the detention cell block sounds broken, asking if it's Jensen's "turn" after the others had their way with her.

** [[spoiler: The biochip upgrade. When infiltrating Tai Yung Medical, you hear them talking about this mystery chip that they suddenly have to rush-produce. When you have your first real big hard glitch in Heng Sha after the crash-landing, you notice several other augged people reeling over at the very same time, suspiciously synchronized. If you've played the original Deus Ex, you may recognize the name of the World Health Organization head mentioned in the Picus news feed on the Biochip recall: Beth DuClare, a member of the Illuminati. If you opt to get it, you get a cold shutdown of all your augs right before a [[ThatOneBoss very hard boss fight]].]]
